Welcome to the first snippet for May! Last week you saw Jada's reaction to finding out that she's dead. (You can catch up on the earlier excerpts here.) Hope you weren't worried about how traumatic that must have been for her. Thanks to the happy pills her mother put her on after finding her in a tub of bloody bath water with her wrist slit, Jada hasn't felt much of anything.
We pick up this week right after a white-clad guy with a tablet comes to collect Jada from the waiting area of Afterlife Admissions and takes her to the inner office filled with cubicles.
Tablet Guy stopped at an empty cubicle about halfway down the aisle and turned to look at me. “Have a seat here. Someone will be with you momentarily. Don’t touch anything.”
I gave him a salute. “Gotcha. No hacking into God’s e-mail while I wait.”
He frowned and took a silver stylus from his jacket pocket to enter something on the tablet. “Impudence doesn’t help your case any, young lady. If anyone in this department had a sense of humor, we wouldn’t be assigned to this office.”
Next week you'll get to meet Flo, Jada's Afterlife Advisor and keeper of the Golden Paperclips. Can't wait for more? You can buy After Me here. And please also check out the other Snippet Sunday folks and the Weekend Writing Warriors. Something for everyone among these talented writers!
~Stay true to yourself and your dreams will come true!
